It has been 35 years since Dutch and his team of highly trained commandos were caught up in the Summer hunt of an aggressive alien species. Hollywood Collectibles Group has created a seemingly perfect replica of the first Predator’s plasmacaster cannon to celebrate three and a half decades worth of Predator awesomeness.
The HCG Exclusive Edition of the plasmacaster comes with a 4 “x2” plaque; the standard release does not but is still the same price: $699.95. From what I can tell, there are no moving parts, and HCG does not mention any lights or sounds. Most of it appears to be made of resin with a couple of pieces of flexible tubing here and there.
The replica is limited to only 150 pieces and will ship during the third quarter of this year. Various payment plans are available.
This year it is the 35th Anniversary of the original Predator movie. To celebrate this milestone Hollywood Collectibles Group has, for the first time ever, accurately recreated the Predator’s Plasmacaster cannon as a Licensed 1:1 Scale Prop Replica! This intricately detailed, Museum Quality piece is constructed from resin, and mixed media and then hand painted to the finest detail with authentic weathering for added realism! It comes complete with display stand.
- Each piece is hand-cast, hand-finished, hand-painted to exacting standards, then individually hand-numbered.
- This HCG Exclusive Edition also includes an individually numbered 4″ x 2″ Predator-themed plaque.
HCG is making an interesting claim: “for the first time ever, accurately recreated the Predator’s Plasmacaster cannon as a Licensed 1:1 Scale Prop Replica!” I could have sworn that other companies have made accurate replicas of this prop. Many versions of this plasmacaster and others throughout the franchise are available via indie prop makers and are a little more affordable. However, if you want something authentic and licensed, HCG is the way to go for now.[Source: Hollywood Collectibles Group]
